It's Challenge Time at Merly :)

Hello, hello lovely peeps!!

We have another challenge for you over at Merly Impressions. It's all about 'Home' and what it means to you. Lovely, eh?

So here is my take, using the delicious Hidden Treasures collection. I don't know what is going on with me at the moment but I see these papers and choose to go with them rather than my beloved white!! They are simply stunning and I just can't bear to cut them up :D

So let's not shock you too much and start with the details:

What a dear little wooden veneer of a Babushka Doll. I cut a 'man' out on the Silhouette to represent DH and actually it's worked perfectly...he is tall and thin and I am short and rotund!! LOL

Gorgeous Mini Alpha Stickers and some customised chipboard letters.

Bits and Bobs from the Collectables pack

Lovely lace, stickers and a tag and a butterfly die cut from one of the 6x6 papers. I have used the gorgeous Kaisercraft Pearls all over this layout.

See what I mean about the 12x12 papers? Why wouldn't you want to use them?!!

Thanks for popping in today, hope to see your take on the Merly blog.

  1. Ok. I am SHOCKED.....your bg is almost black???!!!!!! It looks fabulous...& you had me rolling in the aisles with the babushka & thin man descriptions:):):) my FAVEST bit? The stapled lace cluster.....& that heart with the are stretching those clever creative wings with this one...go you:):)):))))!

  2. Oh Ali, what a gorgeous page and the background paper is adorable. The lighter papers in the middle really pop with the darker colour behind them. A different look for you but it really works. I might experiment with something similar, always good to do something outside your comfort zone occasionally!. LOVE IT! xx

  3. I LOVE this page. Great colors, great everyting. I love it all.

  4. I like this color combo! Thinking already about making dark page :), very pretty layout!
